Arrived early to check in. My room wasn't ready yet, which is understandable. Was offered an upgraded room in the Palms Place for an extra $33 a night. I agreed to this for the 1st night and was told if I wanted to move to my original room the next day, that won't be a problem! I was booked for 3 nights. Sure enough the next day came, went to the front desk to change rooms and was treated like some kind of a misfit! Was told the hotel is all booked! What about the room I was originally booked for (2 months prior)? I feel like I was suckered on paying for something I didn't even want! If that's the only room available for me, don't make me pay the upgrade fee! Not only is the Palms Place a block away from the casino and restaurants, the whole building is smoke-free and when you're 21 floors up and you want a smoke, that's a long haul to go outside! I didn't sign up for that and nobody gave a crap!
I will say, I thought overall the hotel was kept up really nice, my room was too fancy (not what I wanted) some of the staff was really good and some weren't. I was at the hotel mainly for a concert, The Pearl was Awesome and a great place to see a show! The food court at the palms really comes in handy, I believe McD's is open 24 hours. Nathan's only charges $6 bucks a hot dog! The cab ride from the airport was just shy of $30.00...I took a shuttle from the hotel to the airport for $7.00, It had 4 stops once you left the palms, thats the way to go! Ask a bell-hop. They are the friendliest employees at The Palms! I am still undecided if I'll ever stay at The Palms again just because of my unwanted expensive upgrade, we'll see?
